  • The location is excellent, public transport anbd shopping are close by. However, it is quite expensive for what you get. Small rooms and with a lingering smell. The air conditioning blasts quite a lot, especially in the common room (mostly couches and small coffee tables - hard to work at if you want to set up a laptop). Free breakfast is alright with toast and cereals.

  • Friendly & helpful staff. The place looks to have had an upgrade of facilities, pleasant surprise. New shower curtains in woman's bathroom needed though. WiFi good. Breakfast was great.

  • Horrible room. Just above a nightclub with just a sigle bad quality window. Do not except to sleep before 3:30 am. Room very cold (due to the bad quality window) with no heating. Sleep with your jacket. Do not spend your money on this hostel.

  • Staff not very accommodating or understanding. Doors always unlocked and no padlocks for rent. Very dirty duvets. Smelly and not very clean. Did not feel very safe or comfortable.

  • The pictures don't really look like the actual rooms - pictures are better. Our room had white powder underneath the entire bed, a coffee cup from a previous tourist in the room, no working wifi, and no towels in the room/given to us when we arrived at 10:00pm. The bathrooms were disgusting, there was no paper towel in the ladies room, and the shower curtain was white at the top and black on the bottom. Rooms were extremely loud from bars outside, too.
